Ilja Dragunov will make his return to the Captiol Wrestling Center on next week’s episode of WWE NXT.

The new NXT UK Champion will make an appearance in front of the crowd after Dragunov fought tooth and nail to unseat WALTER in what is a certain match of the year candidate at TakeOver 36. Also announced for next week is Tommaso Ciampa vs. Ridge Holland, and another open challenge by Roderick Strong . The Diamond Mine leader continues to have his eye on KUSHIDA’s Cruiserweight Championship, and he’ll hope to make a statement next Tuesday.
